Stonington Summerfest is June 15, 16 & 17!

June 13th, 2012

This is the time of year when many Central Illinois villages hold festivals and none of them are to be missed. Each is unique in its atmosphere just because of all of the “Local Heart” and work and cooperation which it takes to plan, create and execute a one day event let alone a 3 day event. Stonington Summerfest has an agenda of events, food competitions, entertainment, lunches and dinners, the Grand Parade, the beer tent and whatever else to fill a week all stuffed into 2.5 days. The grand finale is a bigger and better than ever fireworks display at dusk on Sunday evening, June 17. You are all invited to attend and have a good time.

The beauty of luscious, hand dipped strawberries for your February stay with usHand dipped strawberries are always a treat regarless of the time of year, but during February, Love Month, this heart shaped fruit seems especially popular. The male side of our innkeeper pair decided to add a little flair this year by dipping the berries in chocolate then coconut, or dipping in chocolate then toasted chopped almonds or dipping in chocolate then adding a little icing.
